There is some platform sharing between the Cayenee and the Touareg. Was that way with the current generation, too. Body is totally different, though, as is just about everything else bolted onto the platform.
people always seem to forget that there is lots of platform sharing out there and it often does nothing to water down the vehicle built on top of it. Just look at something like Ford's EUCD platform. On top of it, they built vehicles as diverse as the Volvo S80, Ford S-MAX mpv, and Land Rover LR2.

thanks for your comment.I agree.when i had the rx330 lexus,who shares with highlander, the lexus blew it out of the water, no comparison, the GTS 2011 cayenne should be nice .I saw a spy photo,car driver mag. its shorter wider than the previous models. this is my retirement gift to myself. this is the car i like i just test drove a 2010, wow.. puts a smile on my face as wide as the east river.

wow. HUGE difference between those 2 vehicles. Have you checked out the Panamera? Could be a nice balance between a sportscar and SUV.

thanks again for the feedback. I sat in the panamera last week. It looks nice,im just not sure.I own buildings in downtown brooklyn ny, so sometimes i have to put construction materials so the bigger trunk is a need for me. I just dont like the lights in the front. back is ok. that spoiler that rises out is wild.the interior is nice.They told me at the dealership that the new cayenne is getting the panamera interior. lets wait and see. I have a 500.00 refundable deposit on the cayenne,so i can be the first ones to order it. bye

I have just seen a video which seems is the new cayenne, and am really disappointed.
